They even have their own club in the UK, The Jockey Club.
It was no surprise when Bentley revealed the Bentayga Mulliner, and even less of a surprise to see one-off versions arrive. This particular Bentayga Mulliner is one of them. In celebration of its continuing partnership with The Jockey Club, the largest commercial group in British horseracing, Bentley will reveal this one-off commissioned Bentayga by Mulliner at the Cheltenham Festival later this month. Mulliner, quite obviously, styled the ultra-luxury SUV with traces of racing heritage and the equestrian lifestyle.
“The Cheltenham Festival is widely recognized as one of the finest horseracing events in the world, and The Festival’s unique sense of occasion is a perfect showcase for the world’s most exclusive SUV, the Bentayga,” said Uday Senapati, Mulliner’s head of technical operations. “The Mulliner team has been deeply inspired by the equestrian lifestyle, and this has encouraged us to use new materials and techniques for the first time on a Bentley in developing this one-off commission.” The SUV features a Spruce exterior, a modern take on British Racing Green. It’s been further equipped with Blackline Specification and 21-inch diamond-turned and black-painted wheels.
The interior is also bespoke, featuring Cubrian Green and Saddle leather hues. A light blue contrast stitching on the doors and seats helps to accentuate the tweed while Burr Walnut adorns the veneer panels. There’s also a gold horse graphic incorporated into the passenger veneer panel. Because this Bentayga Mulliner was commissioned by The Jockey Club, it’s obviously not for sale (at least not yet).
